Isn’t it human nature for people to be shy? Then, why do people judge others?

    Shyness is a product or trait of a person's environment and upbringing. Just as you have those who are more outgoing, there are those who are more reserved. Personality traits are often shaped through parental influences as well as other externals that cause a person to respond based on their experiences. To be clear, a level of shyness or reservation is not to be categorized as inherently wrong or inferior, but if it impedes one's ability to function in society at a fairly productive manner, then it can be problematic. 

    The judgment of others unfortunately is inevitable, only because all of us are wired by default to see external behavior and make a judgment. This has to do with examining motives to ensure that someone else is not a perceived threat in some respect. It goes far back in terms of human adaptation during the days of earlier human ancestors who made decisions based on survival. However, despite having a default mechanism for judgment, it is better to realize that everyone should be given an opportunity to show who they are, rather than making blanket generalizations. This involves taking the time to study and even choosing to get to know others.

    Nope. Parenting style and attitude determines the shyness of a person. Unfortunately, shy people often get maligned by others and taken as granted. To become a leader, u need to break your shyness and express your views without any hindrance.
